Beirne B. Carter Center for Immunology Research
University of Virginia
School of Medicine
The University of Virginia is widely recognized as one of the top research centers in the world, and we have an outstanding record of training 1000’s of individuals for highly successful careers in academia, industry, and other biomedical science-related disciplines. Investigators in the Beirne B. Carter Center for Immunology Research (CIC) seek a fundamental understanding of how the immune system works to develop revolutionary new treatments, focused on controlling the immune response for significant diseases such as cancer, heart disease, neurodegenerative disorders, COVID and other infectious diseases.
Immunological research is intensely multi-disciplinary and ideally collaborative, relying on well-trained immunologists interacting with researchers in other biomedical disciplines. Because immunology intersects many facets of health and disease, we currently have 48 laboratories associated with our world-renowned Beirne B. Carter Center for Immunology Research (CIC).
These considerations drive our organization and educational programs. We identify, train, and support the career paths of the next generation of immunology researchers.
Pre-Doctoral applicants are limited to those enrolled into our Biomedical Sciences Graduate Programs (BIMS). If you are not currently enrolled in BIMS, then please review the criteria and apply to be considered for the CIC Pre-Doctoral Fellowship. Detailed information about BIMS and the application process can be found at https://med.virginia.edu/bims/
Professional Research Staff
Professional Research Staff (PRS) are not Faculty, Classified, or University Staff; they are principally engaged in research and have limited-term appointments. This includes Research Associates, Research Scientists, and Senior Scientists and are the titles given to postdocs affiliated with the university as employees. In these cases, the source of funds does not restrict direct payment/employment from the university. See the Provost’s Professional Research Staff site and the PostDoctoral Affairs site for more information.

Volunteer opportunities can either be for credit or to gain experience in a field of research.
All other volunteer opportunities for those external to UVA, should review the CIC Resident Labs and contact the PI of that lab directly to discuss opportunities. Please insure you provide the PI with a detailed description of your research interests and a copy of your CV/Resume.
